, i think that it's very important that we recognize that the united states of america has got to push as hard as we can to resolve this israeli-palestinnian issue. and so many events are-- hinge on making that process go forward. >> schieffer: well, what can the president do to get that process going? first thing, obviously, is to get this-- get some sort of a cease-fire in place here? >> well, the first thing i would do is not do what he did back in 2009 and have preconditions on israel and settlement. that made it a nonstarter among other things. the second thing i would do, i would find someone even as high-ranking, frankly, as former president bill clinton to go and be the negotiator. i know he'd hate me for saying that, but we need a person of enormous prestige and influence to have these parties sit down together as an honest broker. but we have a lot of work to do to regain some credibility because we're crumbling all over the middle east . al qaeda is on the comeback. you saw in the last couple of days, fighting between the kurds ankurds and iraqi on the border. the whole mali

together? that's the way the country is supposed to work. i think it's mesh're america coming together for best interest of america. so very good. you know, now that you have the residual effect of the storm, the people anticipate the recovery is going to be more difficult. i agree with peggy noonan, that you're not going to know until later where the blame and such falls. to the point of the economy, i think it's very important-- there are some basic past statistices, important thing-- 1800 people a day are losing their homes in foreclosures. you have these families very concerned about financial stability and taking care of their parentes, taking care of their children. these are the ones that are saying these are the policies of president obama that put us here. i like him personally but i don't necessarily agree he's going to be part of the solution and he has yet to offer one word of solice or solution that gives them that relief. that's why the momentum, i would do you mean with election of 2010, is with republicans, closing gap in colorado, in virginia, and in ohio. and that's w

very different visions of america as they define it. but if that's so, why is this election so close? >> well, because a lot of people are sorting immediately before they hear the arguments. they're sorting by party. people are more partisan. in states they're targeted and whipped up along partisan lieps. it's so close in these states because you have the left and right going to their parties and there aren't just that many undecided voters left over because they're either turned off and not participate ago the vast majority of people are not participating, and the ones that are participating that are undecided, are still small. that number of voters, small-- we don't know where they are. i think david is exactly right. it's too close to know what's going on. i think one other thing we have to mention-- i know you'll talk about it in your second panel-- the advantage the president has in the electoral map. if you look at the nine states that are the battleground states, the president has 431 possible ways to get to that magical 270. mitt romney has 76. if the president wins florida,

americans. if you look at african america african americans -- two things you talk to strategists who know the african american community, there was an effort by republicans in states from pennsylvania, florida, ohio, to shrink the amount of days and ways in which african americans could vote. >> schieffer: you know, to me, most telling statistic in this whole race, dee dee, is when i read and learned from those exit polls that barack obama had won the cuban vote in florida. >> right. in florida. and the hispanic vote made up the entire marge nin florida, ended up being 73,000 votes. you can trace it a lot of different ways but that's one of them. that's pretty surprising. what the obama campaign will tell you, not only was their turnout operation every bit as good and better but their message was better. they won this because they appealed to middle class voters. they said who will do a better job taking care of people like you and middle cross voters resoundingly said yes. another thing john was alluding to, when you try to suppress the vote you try to-- it really makes them mad. and tha
